|Compost||What NOT to Compost|
Consider Mulching (also called Grass Cycling)
Mulching is the practice of leaving grass clippings on your lawn when mowing. Proper mulching requires a mulching blade - they are readily available at hardware stores - however mulching is a natural fertilizer (saving money), does not require bagging (saving time), and keeps organic materials out of the Landfill.
- Mow high. Adjust the mower height to leave your lawn 3-31/2 inches long. Never cut off more than 1/3 of the grass height.
- Mulch it. Use a mulching mower to reduce the size of the clippings. They will break down and release nutrients to your lawn more readily.
- Keep it sharp and dry. A dull blade can damage grass. Sharpen mower blades annually and mow when the grass is dry.
- Alternate mowing direction. This keeps the grass from being pushed over in just one direction and being damaged by the sun.
